  • Testing with cheats in Practice With Bots

    I'd post it in group, but 1000char limit annoys me.

    Since Practice With Bots is run locally, You can set sv_cheats 1 in console.
    Few things I observed so far for anyone who wants to play with this:
    • As far as I know, there is no possibility to disable bots populating, so it's easier if You chose dire as starting side. (because creating units makes them radiant due to 5max dire heroes issue)
    • "Normal" cheats by text doesn't work, You need to use console counterparts. Test/Cheat Commands list is slightly incorrect - few commands were moved to dota_dev subcommand: "dota_dev hero_refresh" for example.


    Useful commands so far:
    dota_bot_disable 1, so they won't try to kill You without any reason
    dota_create_neutral <hero>, act's like -createhero so acronyms are fine (due to 5dire herolimit I suggest You start as dire)
    developer 1, gives You nice error about bones of current selection with entity_id-> useful for ent_... commands
    dota_creeps_no_spawning 1
    find_ent <text>, if You don't use "developer 1", or it won't give You an error with index, this can find any entity given name
    dota_bot_disconnect_player , disconnects all bots so they share control with You and You can use them for testing (I don't know other way of taking control over them) if You do that disable "dota_surrender_on_disconnect"

    My 2 personal favorites for testing:
    ent_setpos <entity id> x y z, finally! to test aoe/ranges of skills You doubt, and don't want camera-centering-fun
    ent_text <entity id> gives awesome summary like this

    There are also some nice commands for hitboxes, attack/acquire ranges etc, but I don't need them yet ("find range" for list)

    ---
    Obstacles so far:

    - dota_create_item does not work (for yourself at least You can give gold and buy it)
    - From spawns, only spawn_rune works? (no spawn neutrals)
    - dota_bot_give_level 10 does not seem to work : (, but You can use dota_bot_level before they spawn and they will have all set level.
    - I can't give them items(dota_bot_give_items) though, any ideas how to fix?
    You gotta FIGHT!
    For Your RIGHT!
    To BUUUGFIX!

    Thanks for this! I've had problems finding the correct codes, and normally just avoiding using Practice With Bots to test things.

    Maybe update Test/Cheat Commands post with this?

      You can start a solo game by typing "map dota" in the console, then you can join Radiant/Dire by typing jointeam good/bad (or spec, then dota_bot_populate for bots and watch 5v5 bots derping, rather amusing)

        Ummm, isn't there already checks for Cheat Enable and Fill Empty Slots with Bots when making practice lobby?

        I could be misunderstanding the point of this thread though .- .
        Every time someone make a false report.
        Making people's losses feel worse with just my name (don't ask me how it work, I certainly don't)

        Currently observed Orb(Unique Attack Modifiers), Critical, and Bash interactions for DotA2

        To:
        People who cry MM isn't fair: Maybe you're not as great as you make yourself to be.
        People who wants surrender: It exists, but I'm not teaching you how to do it.

          Its for the "Practice with Bots" tab, who is hosted locally (0 ms) if you are the only human player.

            What's the command to give yourself gold and level?
            The workload required on the more recent batch of heroes has been increasing over time with the addition of a wide range of new animations, the addition of being Workshop ready on release and having the correct breakdown in order to prevent having to remove the hero from the Workshop and halt progress on the community items like we have seen in the past along with just an overall higher quality model and texture work.-Cyborgmatt

              Most of the console commands equivalent to -levelup -gold -respawn -refresh .... don't work at all, I tried all of them a number off times, none worked!
              Someone can help me with this? These are the ones I need the most to test on "Practice with Bots" mode! Thanks!

                  Just wanted to share this new thing I have learned from source-anonymous...
                  It is revolutionary.
                  Your testing experience shall never be the same...

                  Hover your mouse over a unit, open the console, type "ent_text", and nothing more, press enter, close the console, entity text-wall gets displayed

                    Hey, what is the counterpart for the -createhero chat command? Dota_create_neutral seems to create only neutrals.

                      with a .cfg you can already get rid of a bit typing work.

                      sv_cheats "1"
                      developer "1"
                      dota_bot_disable "1"
                      dota_creeps_no_spawning "1"

                      bind "l" "dota_bot_disconnect_player"
                      bind "u" "dota_dev hero_level_selected 2"
                      bind "m" "dota_dev hero_refresh"
                      bind "n" "ent_text"
